The man was hit about 6 p.m. at the Sheridan Red Line station, 3940 N. Sheridan Ave., said Sgt. Alexander Stinites, a Chicago Police Department spokesman.
The train was going southbound into the station when it hit Markotic, CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinksi said. He was pushed back onto the platform, and he was conscious when the Chicago Fire Department arrived, Hosinksi said.
